It mostly depends wether you want 32 or 64 bits environment. The debian
installer and kernels don't work on the js20, but you can have a working
debian 32 bits userland with a custom kernel on a js20 (even a 64 bits

The problem right now is, I _THINK_, that debian has no clue about biarch
setups (for mixes 32/64 bits environment)
